We are always honored to be a part of our client's special day and when we receive beautiful thank you-s like these, we know we have done exactly what we were set out to do. We work tirelessly to ensure a stellar reputation.

Our clients are our Resume...

Hello my wonderful and beautiful event planner! First, let me just say I am 110% happy with everything! I'm so happy that your name popped up on Google because I couldn't have been any luckier. On a professional level: you are talented, precise, listened to exactly what I wanted and even when I didn't know what I wanted, you somehow did! Your emails and text replies were always fast and you made me feel like I could access you at anytime.  You never rushed me or dismissed me. The details in your work and your work ethics are impressive. On a personal level: you are friendly, down to earth and easy to talk too. You showed how much you care about what I wanted. I really admired how well you adapt to my personality and that you made me feel open to tell you anything. I know you have been doing this for 10+ yrs and already have a good reputation but your humble ways isn't lost at all. I was utterly speechless which as you know if often impossible for me lol when I walked into the room. I love how from the invitation to the welcome sign to the little stars and cloud was all cohesive. The little shoes and bottle props were nice soft touches. The frames of sayings were exactly what I wanted. The centerpieces were extravagant and unique and PERFECT! The vision of teddy being lifted to teddy land over the clouds was achieved flawlessly.  Thank you for using a little cotton (in a professionally done manner) on the craft backdrop. The layout of everything was set perfectly.  The little extra props on the bar were nicely placed. You left no stone unturned. Now, for the cake table and background! WOW,WOW,WOW! Incredible, beautiful, royal, perfection captured the very essence of my family. That was way better than I could have imagined. My baby shower for my little prince has a lot of meaning for me and you made it perfect. Thank you and Robyn and the rest of your staff. I had a great stress-free happy time and all my guests and family loved it. My parents and Michael were extremely happy and felt you did an excellent job! I will definitely keep in touch and recommend you. Thanks again for giving me a beautiful party and getting me anything I wanted and calling in favors when you needed. Take care!  XO, Rachel & Michael, O'Haras Jersey City, NJ

Catherine was wonderful to work with. From the moment I contacted her, she was very responsive, easily accessible and happy to help with whatever I needed. She kept me on track and sane when all the details became overwhelming and somehow managed to not forget anything for our big day. E-mails and phone calls were always responded to same day. Catherine treated us as if we were the only wedding she was working on (which was far from true!), but the promptness with which she answered any questions, and the way in which she initiated contacting me with anything I was forgetting made us feel like we were the most important clients she had. She kept to my vision of the big day and when I was unsure she was there to give advice and make my vision come true. Everything turned out better than I imagined. The price was fair and the service she provided was worth far more than we paid. I would recommend Catherine to anyone looking for someone who will care as much about your wedding as you do! Ivette and Ricardo, Nanina's In The Park, Belleville, NJ


I heard about Catherine through a friend. I told her my vision. After one phone call, I instantly knew that we needed Catherine. She had so many great ideas. When I walked into the room for the first time the night of my sweet 16, I was completely blown away. Catherine had created my room to look beyond anything I had ever dreamed of. Everyone one of my guests were blown away by the décor. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with in creating the best night of my life.

Katherine, Seasons Catering, Washington Township

Cathy was awesome! Because of our crazy busy schedule, we wanted a planner that will basically handle everything and anything about the wedding. We found just that with Cathy. Her attention to detail was phenomenal - from the invitations to the overall design were all fabulous! All the professionals that she recommended was great to work with as well. Our wedding was above and beyond what we expected. All our guests are still talking that it was the best wedding that they have attended. She was always available whenever I have any questions, thoughts or concerns. Love, love, love her! Chanda and Greg, The Tides Estate, North Haledon, NJ


Catherine is very professional and an expert in wedding planning. I trusted her completely and appreciated that she paid attention to details and was responsive and helpful during the planning process.
On the wedding day, I was kept worry-free and that's exactly why I booked a wedding day coordinator (if there were issues, then Catherine or her assistant approached others/vendors about it and I was none the wiser). At the end of the evening, all our items from the reception and bridal suite were packed and ready to go and that alone is worth the price of the services. Who wants to pack up stuff after a night of dancing and fun?! I certainly would have forgotten something, but this was taken care of to the last detail. For this, I recommend anyone hire a DOC, and Catherine is perfectly capable for this duty.

I don't want to know what my wedding would have been like without Catherine's help, she was so great, made everything easy for us, and everything looked fabulous. I had my typical bridal pre-wedding panics, and she was always quick to put my mind at ease. On our wedding day she set up our candy buffet, and it looked a thousand times better than I had imagined! She took great care of me that day, too, making sure I ate, was having fun, and anything I needed, she did. Catherine even noticed the 2 minutes I was sitting down with some friends, saw that something may have been wrong, and came to me to see what was up. I told her nothing was really wrong, just taking a rest because my feet were killing me. She quickly went to my table, got my bridal slippers, and brought them to me. What a relief! I can't thank Catherine enough for all of her help, like I said, I don't want to know what my wedding would have been like without her. I can't recommend her enough!

Natalie and Luke, The Bethwood, Totowa, NJ


The best decision I made during the time of my wedding was hiring Cathy as my planner. She is professional, creative, and very easy to work with. I think about my wedding all the time and how perfect everything was that day. Without Cathy's help I know it would not have been such a wonderful day.

Cathy did so much for my wedding, one of the things was the candy buffet, my guests enjoyed it so much it was beautiful and I'm very happy I decided to have this as part of my reception.

I would definitely recommend Cathy to any future bride she is a pleasure to work with and she will definitely make your vision for your special day come true. My wedding was more than what I had ever imagined and the whole wedding planning and day of was stress free thanks to Cathy. Not only did I hire the best person to help me with my wedding but I also met a truly amazing person who puts her all into everything she does. Thank you so much Cathy for everything you did for Luis and I. Leydiana and Luis, The Bethwood, Totowa, NJ

You've done an amazing job for Leydi and Luis and I am deeply grateful for them finding you . You truly took alot of pressure off them and they are totally happy and grateful to you and found a great friend in you May god bless you and your husband always. Thank You!

I had CSE create a Candy Buffet for our wedding, and it was amazing! My guests haven't stopped talking about the candy buffet. Catherine had wonderful ideas, and was quick to respond when I sent her an email. Also, she linked the candy buffet to our movie theme so it was a hit! In addition, I received day of coordination from CSE. They helped me when I discovered that my garter belt was missing. I did not want to miss out on that opportunity so Catherine and her assistant Carla made me a garter belt using materials available. They saved the day, and we were able to include that tradition during our reception. The service was outstanding, and the end result went above and beyond what I expected. Thank you CSE for all the memories you created for our wedding day! Joeleen and James, The Park Savoy, Florham Park, NJ


You did a fantastic job on the programs and candy buffet for the Dante Alighieri 100th  year celebration Luncheon in Casino in the park.  Your Candy Buffet display was outrageous. You are the best at what you do. Thanks again,

I think about my wedding day all the time. It was beautiful!!  The ceremony and reception were fabulous, I couldn't have asked for anything better.  You did such a great job preparing everything for our day.  I don't know what I would have done with out your help.  

Thanks so much, Toni Lynn & Anthony (Tony Santana Cigar Vault), Pantagis Renaissance, Scotch Plains, NJ


Dear Cathy,

Thank You so much for your help over the past 5 weeks.

I was unsure if I wanted to hire a Day of Coordinator, and from the first conversation I had with you, I knew I had made the right decision. You have been an absolute pleasure to work with, I wish you well in the future. Thank You for all of your help. You have gone above and beyond!

I loved working with Catherine!

She was very professional but she also made me feel she was personally invested in my day. She put together the most amazing Candy Buffet for my Halloween wedding. She really embraced the Holiday without going over board! She was always available for me either through phone or email. I highly recommend her for any of your event planning needs! Sarah & Todd, The Tides Estate, North Haledon, NJ


Cathy was excellent to work with!! Highly Professional and very detail oriented....A sweetheart too! She assisted with ideas and design concept for the wedding, she did my bathroom baskets, my favor tags, place cards and table #'s...Cathy was a tremendous help as well as supportive! Thanks again C.!!!!

Catherine and her staff were highly organized, attentive to all the little details and our requests, and professional throughout the process. They made our wedding day run very smoothly and much more enjoyable for my wife and me. I would recommend them without hesitation.

We booked CSE's day of coordination package for our wedding in August. The package went way beyond just "day of", including several meetings before the wedding to work out every little detail of the day, a visit to the venue for the final walk through a few weeks before, calling all the vendors that had been booked to verify expectations/arrival times and so much more! We would definitely recommend Catherine to anyone planning their wedding, she and her assistant really made my day stress free and we were actually able to enjoy every minute since she arrived at the venue early to set up all of the little details that we had planned, We really could not imagine our day going anymore perfectly! Erica & John, The Mill in Springlake Heights, Springlake, NJ


Dear Cathy,

We can't thank you enough for all of the hard work you and your team did to help make our day so special! Your creativity and talent are amazing and it really showed at our wedding.  We have gotten so many compliments on all of the "little details" that we thought no one would notice but  us. We wouldn't have been able to make it through the day without losing our sanity if it wasn't for you.  And even though you were working at our wedding, we are so glad that you were able to share in our joy as well. All our love, Dan and Carrie Vissers, The Birchwood Manor, Whippany, NJ



Hi, I just received my order. I greatly appreciate your help. Thanks so much, I really love how everything came out.  The colors look great.  I can't wait to see how it looks at the reception. I'll have to send you some pictures. Take Care. Kelly-Bride, Online Custom Order (Invitations & Reception Stationery)


“Molte Grazie! Many Thanks! Catherine, we, the President and Co-Chairpersons, would like to express our gratitude to you for your time and generous gift. Without your help we would be unable to fund scholarships awarded each year to students of the Italian language who are deserving and aspiring young men and women"

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help. Everything you did was above and beyond of what I expected. Considering that I came to you with such short notice. My menus, table cards,escort cards, and bride & groom signs were wonderful. Everything just came together so nicely because of you. I couldn't have done it without you. You also have a way with brides. God only knows you kept me grounded those last few days before my wedding. Just when I though I was going to have a nervous breakdown you were there to keep me together. You are a perfectionist! Keep doing what your doing. Don't ever change.

Love Rebecca & Pete, The Tides Estate, North Haledon, NJ



Thank you for helping us create a wonderful 1st birthday for our daughter Savannah.

We couldn't have pulled it off so smoothly without your eye for perfection and your attention to detail with just 3 weeks to the day. The  Candy Buffet  was a "hit"! For Your Event Planning's / CSE's level of service was fantastic! The Ortiz Family, Private Residence


Dear Catherine,

Thank you for making our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration a great success. The Favors and Centerpieces were exceptional. You have been a great help. I will highly recommend you to all of our family and friends. Wish you lots of success, Carol & Louis, DaNoi Restaurant, Bayonne, NJ
